MERCURY FUR

Honors Directing Thesis

The government has riddled the poor areas of the city with addictive hallucinogenic butterflies, once-habitable neighborhoods have descended into anarchy, and those remaining have bought their survival by creating a black market of goods and services catering to the dark sides of the privileged. Mercury Fur follows two brothers and their chosen ‘family’ of outcasts as they throw a particularly vile party for a businessman.
